Pretty decent hefeweizen on draft at the King of Prussia restaurant. The beer poured a cloudy and hazy dark straw color with a fairly small white head. There was only a minimal amount of lacing left from the head. The nose had lots of banana, clove and pepper, as did the flavors.

hotstuff (5233) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 17, 2014
Rated on 9-10-2011 at Mad Anthony Oktobeerfest in Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer has a small off-white head that is long lasting, opaque straw body and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, wheat, sweet, bananas, spicy, and clove. The taste is lightly sweet, malt, wheat, bananas, clove, and light spice. The mouthfeel is light tingly carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This is an easy drinking and session beer. The various flavors come together nicely and I would drink this beer again.

Dark hazy orange pour, served with a slice of orange floating on top so you know what your palate is about to get. Smells like citrus, banana, wheat, and clove. Tastes pretty much like that, but with some hops that I couldnt get from the smell, and more of a wheat finish. Medium bodied and quite refreshing. It’s like a beer-snob’s version of Blue Moon.

On tap at Rock Bottom Minneapolis on 05/26/2009. Hazy orange body with a medium frothy off-white head. Sweet banana and clove aroma with some faint fruit notes. Big banana flavor, some yeastiness, and a bit of faint clove on a wheat background. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 10, 2008
Cloudy/hazy yellow with a very nice, long-lasting and lacing head. Aroma is coriander, clove and wheat, bubblegum. Taste is sweet bubblegum, strong clove and astringent coriander. Burns the tongue. Ending leaves a smooth, foamy and silky coating on the mouth. Sampled on draught at the brewery in Arlington, VA.

hellbilly (3247) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2008
spot on kid!... desert ridge location. hazy pale yellowish shade of brown with a light white ring. grain and banana hit the nose first followed by light spice/clove, floral, earth/dirt and a light citric tartness. definite bruised banana flavor with some wheat and vanilla. bitter dry finish. medium body leaves a light lactic-like film in my throat. it feels vibrant and sparkly from the carbonation. it tastes good up front but seriously lacks on the finish and back of the tongue...

Give me a break with the location madness, this beer is in Ballston Vigineeaaa. Do you think I don’t know how I spelled that? Pours darker cloudy bananana yellow with a 1.5 inch white head. Aroma of banana and a little onion. Cigarette smokers just kill, I mean really fuck up, your beer rating experience. God knows what the hell it smells like? Fucking parlaiment nicotine and formaldahide? When is the rest of the nation going to grow up to Austin’’s no smoking rules? Surely Virginia will be second to last next to South Carolina. Maybe there’ a luttle sweet banana and mild clove in there. Tastse like some wood, oak, and light banana yeast with a little vanilla. Good lacing. Dry, woody finish.

3.1
Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Sample at Desert Ridge location. Pours the standard hazy yellow with white head. Nose is spice, clove and banana. Palate is cloves, Belgian-like spice, banana and a touch of an apple-like taste. Medium mouth feel with ok lacing. Not bad – refreshing beer.
